My neighbors got a puppy, and now both of their dogs have kennel cough; we did not know that. I am 7.5 months pregnant and I petted both dogs…as did my almost 2 year old and husband. Once our neighbor told us the dogs had kennel cough we all stopped, and washed our hands when we came inside.
Can humans get kennel cough? As a pregnant woman, I have a weakened immune system. Not to mention I also have a young child at home.
